SERVPRO® Professional HVAC Cleaning

SERVPRO® Professional HVAC Cleaning

Looks like high temperatures have arrived early in St. Louis this year, and when it gets near 90 degrees, we tend to keep the doors and windows to our St. Louis homes and businesses sealed up tight to keep the hot weather outside. This also keeps the air trapped inside and recirculating through the building. Without routine maintenance and annual HVAC cleaning, your ductwork can become dusty and dirty especially, if there is neglect in routine air filter replacements. This will cause musty odors, dust, mold, and other contaminants to be circulated around your home or business which will result in poor air quality. This can also be a major heath issue for those who suffer with seasonal allergies.

Professional HVAC cleaning of your ductwork helps improve the air quality and gain energy efficiency. Musty odors will be less noticeable and the potential for mold growth will be drastically reduced. This can also help to remedy any bacteria, fugus, or mold that may be in the ductwork.

Does your ductwork need professionally cleaned? SERVPRO of St. Louis Central and Bridgeton/Florissant can help! Contact our team at 314-260-7177 today to schedule having your ducts cleaned.

SERVPRO Services vs Janitoral Cleaning

There is a significant difference between janitorial cleaning and complete commercial services like what SERVPRO provides their clients. Although both deal with cleaning and are relatable, they both have significantly different services to offer.

Who wouldn’t want a clean and tidy office, that has trash cans emptied out each night. The janitorial services provide regular cleaning maintenance so the office is always ready for anyone to come in. The typical services they offer is carpet vacuuming, floor dusting, removing trash and dusting anywhere else that is needed.

SERVPRO commercial services are called upon to handle bigger and more complex tasks that the janitorial service probably wouldn’t do. SERVPRO offers HVAC duct cleaning, professional carpet cleaning, tile cleaning, upholstery cleaning and much more. When you need this type of service, ask yourself what needs to be accomplished, and understand the methods used and how they are planned into your schedule. Most of the time SERVPRO commercial cleaning services are dealing with homes or businesses that have had a fire, water and smoke damage or a severe storm that has affected your home or business.

SERVPRO of St. Louis Central and Bridgeton/Florissant can handle the more complex cleaning projects that your normal janitoral company can't provide!

When Dealing with Smoke & Soot Damage

6/7/2023 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of St. Louis Central will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
